Beef and Bean Chili

My family loves football.

And fall is for football and parties with delicious food.And there is nothing more delicious, comforting and filling on a cold fall day, than a warm bowl of chili!

My Aunt Hilda always made a delicious chili for game days. Because many in our family (including my Uncle Hassan and my mom) are vegetarian, she would make a vegetarian chili.

I prefer to have some meat, and so my beef and bean chili was born!

Spices are an important component of this dish. I used a blend of Hungarian Paprika, chili powder, Cayenne Pepper, ground cumin, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and kosher salt!
